QUADRENNIAL REVIEW REPORTS:
State and federal laws require states to review their child support guidelines every four years. Reviewing the guidelines involves a third-party expert to analyze the randomly selected case files and to update the schedule that is the backbone of the support calculator. Arizona has completed the initial steps of the mandatory review. The expert’s analysis and review has resulted in the development of two reports:
2015 PROPOSED CALCULATOR: In order for users to have a better understanding of how the proposed changes in the Schedule of Basic Support Obligations may impact real-life situations, a proposed 2015 child support calculator (based on the updated BR4 schedule) has been developed to assist users to make comparisons between the current and proposed child support schedules. Please note: Although users may print the worksheets for comparison purposes, they are not intended for use in current or pending child support cases, and will not be accepted in a family court matter. To differentiate between the current worksheet and the 2015 proposed calculator worksheet, a visible watermark is embedded on each page and the upper left-hand corner of the worksheet includes language indicating that the worksheet calculation is based on the proposed 2015 BR4 schedule.
** THE PERIOD FOR SUBMITTING YOUR PUBLIC COMMENTS HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO 12:00 P.M. ON OCTOBER 22, 2014
The public and system stakeholders are encouraged to provide constructive comments regarding the new proposed child support calculations and the expert’s report information in the “Public Comments” link. Public comments will be used to compile proposed guidelines that will be reviewed by the Committee on Superior Court and the Arizona Judicial Council.
